Cowboys weighing off-field issues of RB Joseph Randle
by Marty Gitlin |

The Cowboys have far more to consider than talent on the field in regard to the possible featured back status of Joseph Randle.

Randle could earn that distinction with DeMarco Murray gone, but his recent arrests on shoplifting and drug charges have given the team much more to think about.

"I think Joe really has to make sure he takes care of everything on and off the field," running backs coach Gary Brown told the Dallas Morning News. "We want to trust Joe, we like Joe, but we want to make sure he's going to be with us at all times.

"I think he's maturing up and he's getting better and he understands the opportunity he has in front of him and I think he'll take full advantage. I think those days are behind him and we're looking forward to working with Joe. ... He and I have sat down and had one-on-one conversations about his future and I think he wants to go in the right direction."

Randle, would could face discipline from the NFL for his indescretions, averaged an impressive 6.7 yards per carry last season.

Cowboys RB Randle won't face felony charges in domestic case
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Cowboys running back Joseph Randle will not face felony domestic abuse charges as the Sedgwick County, Kansas District Attorney cleared him in allegations made by his ex-girlfriend, per the Dallas Morning News, due to a lack of evidence.

Randle was involved in an incident with Dalia Jacobs, on Feb. 3 at a hotel in his hometown of Wichita, Kan. Jacobs accused Randle of pointing a gun at her friend and the infant son she has with the running back. She also said in a police report that Randle shattered the window of a car, sending glass flying across her friend and their son.

Randle could have faced a possible six-game suspension by the NFL if he had been charged in the case for a first-time offense under the league’s personal conduct policy.

Cowboys RB Joseph Randle's drug charge dropped
by Jason Butt |

Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has had his suspicion of marijuana possession charge dropped, according to the Associated Press

Police spokesman Lt. James Espinoza told the AP that there were "inconsistencies" with the drug charge and therefore they would not bring it.

However, the report also states that by dropping the marijuana charge, police can charge Randle with other offenses at the same time from a domestic violence allegation that occurred from the same incident.

Earlier Friday, the Dallas Morning News reported Randle's ex-girlfriend, Dalia Jacobs, filed a petition for a protective order against the Cowboys running back. Jacobs claimed Randle pointed a gun at her friend and punched the windshield of a vehicle.

Police were called to the scene but never found a firearm.

Ex-girlfriend files for protective order against Cowboys' Randle
by Jason Butt |

Cowboys running back Joseph Randle's ex-girlfriend, also the mother of his child, has filed a petition for a protective order against him, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Randle is accused of pointing a gun at his ex-girlfriend Dalia Jacobs' friend in a car, with his son Daniel in a passenger seat. Jacobs' friend then covered up the child with her body, which followed with Randle punching the windshield of the vehicle they were in.

Via the Dallas Morning News, the petition for a protective order states Randle "has a violent temper and gets angry very quickly."

Randle was arrested in his hometown of Wichita, Kan. on Wednesday after police responded to a domestic violence call. Police then found Randle in possession of marijuana, which resulted in the arrest. Randle was not taken to jail but received a misdemeanor citation. He's expected to appear in court on Feb. 24. A firearm was not found by police.

Randle, a Wichita native, made headlines during the NFL season after he was arrested for shoplifting cologne and underwear at a Dillard's in Texas.

Randle ran for 343 yards and three touchdowns for the Cowboys in 2014.

Joseph Randle: 'Learning the value of a good lawyer each day!'
by Larry Hartstein |

Responding to his second arrest in four months, Cowboys running back Joseph Randle tweeted, "Learning the value of a good Lawyer each day! #ItsAMust."

The Dallas Morning News noted Randle later tweeted advice about "watching out for the company you keep. He deleted that tweet about 20 minutes after it was sent."

Randle was charged with possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor, in Wichita, Kan., early Tuesday. He was not taken to jail but is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 24.

Randle has a hearing April 10 for an incident last fall in which he's accused of shoplifting a bottle of cologne and a pack of underwear from Dillard's. Following that arrest, Randle landed an underwear sponsorship from MeUndies.

The Cowboys fined Randle following the alleged shoplifting incident. They have not commented on Tuesday's incident.
